First Craft Show

So I had my first craft show this weekend. It went okay, but I waited too long to put in my application, so I was way at the end of a hallway and didn't get much traffic. It was fun though, especially with my BFF Lisa hanging with me! Here's a picture of my display when I set it up the day before:

Copper Patina

The past month or so I've been experimenting with different types of patina. I first tried using liver of sulfur, but the results were not as bright as I wanted. Then I splurged and bought a micro torch, to try making my own ball pins, and see the patina effects of heating copper. I've been having lots of fun with it! I love the rainbow colors. I don't know if they will last though, I may try sealing?

The Blues...

It's funny how much blue, turquoise, aqua jewelry I make. I rarely wear those colors, but they appeal to me creatively. I think it's because it reminds me of the beach and the water.
